Beef Ribs

I marinated these in a dry rub overnight and roasted in the oven for 2.5 hours, basting with the sauce every half hour. It was juicy and tender (the meat falling off the bone). I could have roasted it longer, but I was really hungry.

Gourmet burgers for lunch. Turkey for me, beef for him. Complimented with a side of fries and onion strings.

Loco Moco

I was lazy, so I whipped up a fast and easy meal for dinner. This was a staple meal back in the college days.

Rice, eggs, and spam. I like my spam crispy and brown.

Rotini alla Caprese

I've been uninspired lately, so there wasn't much cooking this week. However, today I scored lots of fruits and some veggies from my sweet auntie. In this bounty were some ripe tomatoes. So, I searched for a recipe and I found it in Giada's Kitchen.

Giada's recipe calls for fusilli, but I only had tri-colored rotini. I have to say, it turned out pretty good, and I could have eaten a second bowl. But, I didn't want to over eat.

What do you think? Looks the same?

Caprese Salad

Nothing special about my caprese salad. EXCEPT, the basil I used here is from my basil plant I've been growing in my kitchen! (I took this pic with my camera phone, so quality is bad)
